These light bulbs simply disintegrate in the socket and come apart. Then you have to remove the metal part of the bulb from the socket with pliers. Every Sylvania bulb I purchased, total of 4, ended this way. I contacted manufacturer and got a robotic response - nothing else.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by wor23 Works OK, but ...
I purchased these globe light bulbs for my 6-bulb bathroom fixture to replace one burned-out light bulb (and five soon likely to burn out) - all 40W. However, as it turned out, these bulbs are rated 40W at 130V; so on my 120V circuit they de-rate to 35W with a commensurately reduced light output.
Note: I found another use for them and subsequently purchased the needed 40W/120V globe bulbs from another source.
